We are a food pantry located in Rowlett, Texas and have been in business for almost 12 years. We currently offer fresh produce, canned goods, dry goods, frozen food & meat, bread and bakery. When available, we offer hygiene, cleaning and pet supplies. We operate under a no boarder and non-discriminating policy. We accept all who come to our pantry for food. We do not prepare the food but distribute the food for the families to prepare at home. Our current volume is approximately 800 families per week and food distribution is 4 days per week.
We can handle very large amounts of food. We have refrigeration and freezer space. We can take deliveries Monday - Friday and if local, we can arrange pick ups as well. We have 2 box trucks at our disposal.
You can reach out on our main number and use extension 302.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
